Coding for GOOD: Why Businesses Need to Participate in Educating Not Just Recruiting

"In a nutshell, rather than pay a fleet of talent recruiters or sift through volumes of resumes to find our next developer, we’ve worked with Apollo Group to create our own 16-lesson online curriculum at good.is/codingforgood that will teach anyone — from novice to veteran — the essential coding skills required to begin a career on our tech team. Our CTO, Doug Sellers, helped build the curriculum, and we very gratefully got our friends at Twitter, Electronic Arts, SoundCloud, Grooveshark and HUGE to teach video lessons around key topics.”

Thanks, Chelsea

Announcing Coding for GOOD: 16 Steps to Become a Coder
GOOD and Apollo Group are excited to announce the launch of Coding for GOOD, an opportunity to gain skills in coding and, for one lucky participant, a chance to work with us here at GOOD. It’s our effort to bridge the skills gap through real-world application.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn what goes on behind the scenes of your favorite websites or apps, now is your chance. And guess what, it’s really not as hard as you think. Through Coding for GOOD you’ll learn step-by-step in easy to follow lessons the rules for HTML, CSS, Java Script and how to use APIs.
To get started, you’ll need to work your way through the sixteen free coding lessons found here. Each lesson will walk you through the topic and give you a challenge to test what you’ve learned. If you get stuck, each challenge has a video to help you along.
Then, starting Monday, December 3 you’ll have a chance to be hired onto the GOOD Tech team as a junior engineer. Just showcase your mastery of all of the lessons by submitting a final project and a panel of judges will select three candidates to be flown to Los Angeles in January to compete in the hack-a-thon. The winner will have the opportunity to join the team of coders here at GOOD.
So, what are you waiting for? Get started on your coding lessons here.
